We have a lot of developers here that exclusively use egit for working on their repositories, partially since some years. I noticed that all these repos seem to have a huge number of loose objects (and taking up to 10 times more disk space than after running gc explicitly). That makes me believe jgit doesn't have automatic gc.

Can I enable it somehow or is the advice to have everyone add a scheduled task to run git gc --auto from the command line once a month?
